If you guys aren't aware of the pedigree behind this game, do pick this up first and then check out the incredible Guacamelee on PC or Vita. Some of the best stuff on any platform.

Severed and Guacamelee are two of the best games I have played on the vita and cannot recommend it enough. If I hadn't platinum trophies this game on vita it would be a instabuy.

Guacamelee now has a super turbo championship edition on ps4 with new enemies moves abilities, literally anything that was not great before they went back and improved

Instabought! I've never hit the buy button so fast! Tales from Space is one of my favourite Vita games and Guacamelee is awesome as well. Never played this - so excited! This developer has never let me down!

Freaking awesome!
